Buddhism North Fife

This is a younger version of myself with head in the clouds at Rumtek Sikkim North India.

Metal smiths at Runtek Monastery. Their workshop lay just below the centre on the hillside with an open aspect facing East to the mountains bordering Tibet and Sikkim. Kindly they demonstrated various techniques, their high quality work inspired me to make with confidence the esoteric and ceremonial artefacts required of me to furnish the needs of Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. The piece below is but one example.

Offering Mandala, engraved silver parcel gilt and jewel encrusted.
